Longevity Noodles with Chinese Leeks
To slurp or not to slurp? Time to forgo all your dining etiquette, for this hearty plate of noodles calls for the ultimate slurping experience! Long life noodles, also known as “yi mien”, is a symbol of longevity. Cutting or biting these deliciously chewy strands is a big no-no as it is linked to the ominous act of cutting one’s life.
Derived from freshly pressed olives, Borges classic olive oil is rich in healthy monounsaturated fat, which is known to lower cholesterol. Although not a common choice in Asian cooking, it’s a healthier alternative to butter or other culinary oils. Without interfering with the rich savoury flavours in Asian cuisines, olive oil adds a delicate accent to any dish. Stir frying shallots and garlic with olive oil results in that superbly fragrant concoction to fry your other ingredients in. Finish off your dish and season with fish sauce for that savoury depth of flavour.
Commonly served during Chinese celebrations, this delicious one-pan dish is not limited to special occasions only. Switch up your usual variety of noodles and try your luck at slurping to immortality!
